Parkside Cardiology Implements GEMMS
Parkside Cardiology become the first practice in Colorado Springs and Southern Colorado to implement GEMMS, the premier electronic medical record system for cardiology. This system will allow for more rapid exchange of information between Parkside's office and all referring doctors.
The GEMMS system allows Parkside's doctors to track all patient medications and notify them if a government mandated change is necessary. As an example if a drug is removed from the market, this system can track and allow Parkside Cardiology to notify all the appropriate patients. The system also allows Parkside doctors to remotely view patient records in order to provide better patient care. Prior to this technology important information could only be seen if the doctor had the chart. Now whether on call or in a hospital Parkside doctors always have access to records 24 hours a day. Other features in the system will eventually allow all bloodwork performed to be sent directly in the patient record electronically.
GEMMS allows Parkside Cardiology's doctors to deliver better patient care in more timely and efficient manner.

Parkside Cardiology performs first outpatient 64 slice Cardiac CT in southern Colorado using the revolutionary Toshiba Aquilion 64 scanner.
On June 26, 2006 Parkside Cardiology performed the first CT angiogram of the heart using the first install of the most advanced 64 slice CT scanner on the market, the Toshiba Aquilion 64. The exam was performed under the supervision of Dr. Michael Lenis, the CT Program Director within Parkside Cardiology.
The 64 slice CT scanner produces ultra-fast images of the heart in 2 and 3D with incredible detail. The scan is performed in seconds and gives more information than what has previously been available to the practicing cardiologist. The ability to see inside the arteries and evaluate blockage make it a one of a kind test.
"64 slice cardiac CT is changing the practice of cardiology," says Dr. Lenis. "The amount of information available with such a rapid, painless exam is almost unbelievable. Information can be obtained on blockages, bypasses, and even patients born with different forms of genetic (congenital) heart disease."
The test however is not limited to examining the heart; all organs, bone and soft tissue within the chest are also seen. It is because of this that all studies performed at Parkside Cardiology are interpreted by a board certified cardiologist and radiologist.
"Toshiba is proud to partner with Parkside Cardiology to establish the regions premier cardiovascular site," said Toshiba representative, David Hand. "Toshiba and Parkside Cardiology are pleased to be the first to offer this technology to patients in Southern Colorado and the adjacent areas. It is technology that has the potential to save a life."
For more information regarding this state of the art test please contact Christopher N. Tulin, MD, Parkside Cardiology at (719) 471-1775.
